David Gettis | Carolina Panthers | WR
2012 Experience: 3rd Season
|Twitter News||Team Schedule|
Fantasy Football Outlook: David Gettis had a productive rookie season and was primed to win the No.2 job, opposite Steve Smith until an ACL tear ended his season in training camp.
While Gettis is recovering well, he will be in a dog fight for a starting position with Brandon LaFell. The Panthers have been outspoken about LaFell being ready for a breakout year, so Gettis may have to wait until an injury before he cracks the starting lineup.
Keep an eye on Gettis through the early portion of the season, he has the talent to be a worthy addition in fantasy leagues if he should find his way into a regular role.

Preseason 2011: Gettis tears ACL, Done For The Year
David Gettis looked to be in the lead for the No.2 job in Carolina but a torn ACL injury in camp has ended his season. Gettis will come back next off-season and should have a shot to help the team as he will get a full year to recover from the injury, before the 2012 regular season.

While fellow rookie receivers Brandon LaFell and Armanti Edwards were the talk of the Panthers’ future at receiver, it was a sixth round selection David Gettis that showed fantasy owners, he might be a viable option in future years. All three receivers are going to get more opportunities this year as veteran Steve Smith is likely to be headed elsewhere via trade after the lockout.
That said, it’s going to be hard for these receivers to make an impact for fantasy for at least the first half of the season as they will have a young, unproven quarterback under center, no matter if it’s Jimmy Clausen or No.1 overall pick Cam Newton. The Panther passing game is clearly a work in progress, and I can only recommend Gettis a a flair pick in dynasty leagues to fill out your team. In standard redraft leagues, Gettis will more than likely find the waiver wire, even if he does win a starting job.
